and be safe!!! That soot in an EGR valve has been burnt at very high temperatures and contains all sorts of nasties, use gloves and a mask, avoid breathing cleaning fluids and dust............unless your into that type of thing :D:

Kingo :thumbsup:

Yeah, that soot is a really fine powder; Don't air-blast or vacuum, esp. in an enclosed space - This stuff is like printer toner and it'll go right through the filters of most vacuum cleaners!

Just like to say that I bought a 2005 Avensis 2.0 D4D last week, and during the test drive all appeared fine. However it soon became apparent that after a period of driving it became dangerously sluggish when pulling out or climbing in low gear. I did an EGR clean today with the help information from this forum site and the car is now driving like a peach. Thanks a lot.

Hi All, I cleaned my EGR valve and car was still sluggish, took the turbo off and found that it was clogged with soot also so I cleaned that out. Still sluggish and still had the engine management light on, VSC and TRC lights on also. Cleaned the 5th injector and after that lights went out and all seemed to be fine but then it became intermittent. The car is sluggish climbing hills and I can feel the car kick when the turbo kicks in. Got in touch with a toyota mechanic who checked all the work I had done and advised that the EGR valve is sticking open. I phoned toyota directly who have asked for my service history (which is fully up to date and services at regular intervals) and my tax book. They said toyota might meet me half way and pay for 50% of the EGR valve and i pay the other 50% plus labour or they may replace the EGR and I'll have to pay labour only as part of good will. Going to see them later so will let you know.

Hi,

I have a TX3 Jan 07 'facelift' model. Mentioned at 60,000 mile service that mpg wasn't as good as it had been. Toyota dealer checked everything and discovered EGR valve was sluggish. I had a full service history so dealer made a case to Toyota for a free replacement. Mr T said yes, so I got a 300 bill paid for by Toyota.

Good luck & let us know how you get on.
